SHOULD I BE WORKING FOR MYSELF?

October 11, 2016

I know I’ve been posting consistently but I feel like I haven’t talked-talked to you guys in a while! What’s up, people?

 

I’d like to share what’s going on with me-me… not just where I’ve been going and what I’ve been doing. This time, we’re talking career. 

 

I’m still jobless, y’all.

 

Okay, I lied. I’m not at all really jobless — I still work at ALDO here and there. And when I’m not, I’m working my website (creating posts, working with brands, attending events).

 

Lately, I’ve been considering working for myself full-time. Yes, yes, I’ve been thinking about dropping everything and becoming self-employed full-time.

 

Self-employed!

 

That word alone sounds awesome. Boss.

 

For some time now, I’ve been seeing self-employed this and self-employed that, or freelancer this and freelancer that! And honestly, I know that’s where I’ll end up. I’ve always said I wanted to be my own boss. But not now…later lol.

 

It’s like: Tarah, is you (yes, “is”) trying to find a sign too hard? Or, is it really God just throwing it at me? And, are those even signs at all?! I don’t know.

 

And it’s also like: okay, I’ve done everything right (school-wise, application-wise, networking-wise). God, are you telling me you’re not giving me a job because I already have one…myself? Are you telling me that I am my job? Or, are you teaching me to wait wait and wait some more?

 

Don’t know.

 

What I do know is to stay ready.

In the past few weeks, I’ve been preparing myself. I’ve begun taking the necessary steps to ultimately enhance Adorned in Armor for us. (Peep the fb comment feature, yo! I’m so excited.)

 

I’ve been learning how to generate more income outside of collaborations, sponsorships and free clothes. Like, I’ve added ads and I’m so proud of myself lol. Learning these things can be quite confusing!

 

The scariest part will be learning about tax stuff, though *shudders*.

 

But for real! I truly find joy on my site. Talking to you beautiful people. Working with brands. Growing. It actually excites me to cuddle up with my laptop and write even at 4 am in the morning.

 

Opening my laptop is even more embracing now that I have my new custom laptop skin! Seeing “Adorned in Armor” on it makes me feel so official haha. It’s from the amazing people over at Case App (thanks for feeding my love for my brand, guys)!

 

They also gifted me a super cute matching phone case. I had a discount code going on back on my insta (reason number 48220820842 of why you should be following) but it’s over now!

 

Because of how much I gush over seeing my brand on items I use so much, I’d like to do the same for you.  All you have to do is be subscribed to my blog, follow my insta, and leave a comment below! It can be about this post, what you want your case to say (they have so many options), or even what drives you to do your best work. One will win $40 towards your own customized items on Case App!

 

So…To freelance or not to freelance? That is the question! I know I can do it, but my main concern is if God wants me to.

I know the answer may seem like an easy yes, but I’ll pray til I know for sure. And of course, I’ll let ya know, too!

    First, I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!! Keep up the amazing work 🙂 Second, are we like twins or something lol. This post is really my life right now, that’s crazy! I am on the journey to figuring it out also and wondering is God trying to tell me something. I am learning to be patient, be still, be silent and really listen to what God has planned for me. I totally understand how you feel and I appreciate this post!!!
